Devil's Garden

Hoodoos at Devil's Garden
Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Utah

After we explored the slot canyons in Dry Fork Wash and were heading back toward Escalante, Utah along Hole-in-the-Rock Road, we stopped at the Devil's Garden, an area of fantastically weathered sandstone hoodoos.

An elegant natural bridge holding on by a "thread"

The hoodoos formed from differential erosion of three rock strata; the upper and lower rock layers were more resistant to erosion than the middle layer, yielding this garden of earthly delights. Enjoy!
